Finding correct max_servers limit for accounting purposes

I've got stub perl accounting function:
sub accounting {
    return RLM_MODULE_OK;
So there is no slow code.
My accounting traffic (In: 2.5 MiB/s and Out: 328KiB/s):

When first portion of traffic hits server it creates max number of servers.
It doesn't matter what number 32, 128 or even 600 so 'max_servers' doesn't seem to make much difference.
Here last peak is 600 threads.

Should I ever worry about regularly reaching the 'max_servers' number of threads if after creating number of threads goes down or mayne C module will work faster?
